Today, Soundgarden announce their Winter 2013 North American tour dates including two-night engagements in New York City, Toronto, Chicago, San Francisco, Los Angeles and, for the first time since the band reunited with their surprise show at the Showbox, Soundgarden will be playing two shows in their hometown of Seattle. Fan Club pre-sales begin on Monday, November 12th and tickets go on-sale to the public starting on Friday, November 16th.

This is the first North American tour for Soundgarden showcasing their new album, King Animal, to be released on November 13 via Loma Vista/Republic Records. The band has been headlining and playing to sold out crowds since they got back together over two years ago to critical acclaim. The New York Times said, “After 14 years between tours, Soundgarden was back in full force, its paradigm intact. This is one reunited band that can pick up right where it left off.”

Soundgarden have also released a music video for “Been Away Too Long,” the first single from their new album King Animal today, available to watch on VEVO HERE. The video, directed by the bands’ art director Josh Graham, was filmed in NYC at Abandon Palace. Read a conversation about the making of the video with Josh Graham and Kim Thayil on VICE.com.

The band has also announced a commemorative poster art design contest for the tour, asking fans to use the album title as the theme to create a ferocious and primal design that embodies the untamed disposition of a “King Animal.” The deadline for submission is December 21st. For more information, go here.

With two Grammy® Awards and over 21 million records sold worldwide, Soundgarden redefined rock music for a whole generation and had a revolutionary impact on the course of musical history. At the dawn of 2010, the band, Chris Cornell, Matt Cameron, Kim Thayil and Ben Shepherd, announced a new beginning. In the last three years since Soundgarden has reunited, they released their first retrospective, Telephantasm, which was certified platinum, their first live album, Live on I-5, penned the end title song, “Live to Rise,” for the feature film The Avengers which went to No.1 on Modern and Active Rock radio, and headlined sold-out shows and festivals around the world. Now, comes the band’s first collection of new songs since the 1990′s.

Seattle’s Soundgarden will release King Animal, the band’s first new studio album in over 15 years via Tom Whalley’s new record label, a partnership between his Seven Four Entertainment and Republic Records, on November 13th, 2012. The album’s first single, “Been Away Too Long” will be available via digital retailers on September 27th. The band co-produced their sixth studio album with longtime Soundgarden friend and producer Adam Kasper (Foo Fighters, Nirvana, Pearl Jam) and recorded at Studio X in Seattle. King Animal was mixed by Joe Barresi (The Melvins, Queens of the Stone Age, Weezer) in Pasadena, California.

With two GRAMMY ® award wins, seven overall nominations and over 21 million records sold worldwide, Soundgarden redefined rock music for a whole generation and had a revolutionary impact on the course of musical history. At the dawn of 2010, the band, Chris Cornell, Matt Cameron, Kim Thayil and Ben Shepherd, announced a new beginning. In the last three years since Soundgarden has reunited, they released their first retrospective, Telephantasm, which was certified platinum, their first live album, Live on I-5, penned the end title song, “Live to Rise,” for the feature film The Avengers which went to No.1 on Modern and Active Rock radio, and headlined sold-out shows and festivals around the world. Now, comes the band’s first collection of new songs since the 1990′s.

The writing and recording of the album was a true collaborative effort. Riotous album opener and first single “Been Away Too Long” finds Soundgarden back at it with a double-edged blast of homecoming celebration and urban angst. King Animal can be explosive, as in “Blood On The Valley Floor,” nightmarish (“Worse Dreams”) or wistful (“Halfway There”), leading us through changing sonic landscapes that can embrace both the jazz inflections of “Black Saturday” and the feral rocker “Attrition,” with compelling lyrics by bassist Ben Shepherd. The subject matter is broad – Kim Thayil’s lyrics for “Non-State Actor” are a sharp and cynical take on the powers behind political thrones, while Cornell’s bruised and introspective “Bones of Birds” explores the terrors and vulnerabilities of parenthood.

Soundgarden remain a truly ‘alternative’ band as they embark on the next chapter of their journey, steadfast in their roots with 15 years of growth behind them. King Animal follows the musical evolution of one of the world’s most groundbreaking bands. As the BBC put it, they are “a band beyond lazy labels and genre limits.” This is a long awaited return for both the band and fans alike.

Legendary Seattle rock band Soundgarden–in the group’s only U.S. festival appearance of the year–is the first headliner to be announced for the 2011 THE VOODOO EXPERIENCE PRESENTED BY STEPHEN REHAGE. VOODOO–the final musical celebration of the annual U.S. music festival season–is set to take place in New Orleans’ City Park, Friday, October 28, Saturday, October 29 and Sunday, October 30.

The line-up for VOODOO’s 13th consecutive year will be unveiled in the months leading up to the Halloween weekend celebration. The talent will once again feature top-tier and innovative artists from a variety of musical genres, plus reflect the multitude of cultures that define this historic and beloved American city. This year’s VOODOO will continue to grow its dedicated dance space, Le Plur, which was reintroduced to concert-goers last year and quickly became a fan favorite.

This year’s VOODOO will once again partner with Gingerbread Shed Corporation, producers of the powerful Elevate® platform for festival ticketing, gate management, and advanced distribution and marketing solutions for their ticketing needs.

Tickets for the 2011 VOODOO are available now via www.thevoodooexperience.com utilizing Elevate’s easy online shopping experience–with helpful customer service–that allows buyers to print their own tickets. A limited number of pre-sale tickets are available through June 8 at these prices: three-day weekend GA tickets are $125; LOA Lounge VIP three-day pass are $375 and LOA Lounge VIP three-day pass with parking are $425. In addition, concert-goers can utilize the VOODOO EZ Pay on any ticket purchase over $300. EZ Pay features three equal layaway payments–the first deduction will be made the day of purchase with two subsequent payments to process on the same day of each subsequent month until the ticket(s) are paid in full.

VOODOO annually takes place in historic City Park, amid lush lagoons, bayous and one of the largest collections of mature oak trees in the world. The 1,300-acre park–the region’s principal recreation site that attracts over 7 million visits each year–has been home to the VOODOO since its 1999 debut, with the exception of 2005 VOODOO which was displaced by the city’s hurricane damage.

More information about this year’s VOODOO can be found at www.thevoodooexperience.com or via the official VOODOO app, which can be downloaded for free via the I-tunes Store (http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/voodoo-experience/id335123801?mt=8) and the Android Market (https://market.android.com/details?id=musicfestival.voodoo2010&feature=search_result). 2011 partners include Bud Light, Toyota, Red Bull, Fuse TV and American Spirits Natural Tobacco.
